Chris Kennedy KC, Head of Chambers commented:
"I could not think of a better person to take over as head of the PI group than Brian. His reputation as a practitioner is second to none and he has been a constant and ready source of advice and encouragement to the other members of the group. I know that they will be as delighted as I am by this news."

Brian McCluggage, Head of the Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence Group commented:
"I was the junior tenant in chambers when the PI & Clinical Negligence Group was formed in 1997. Since that time the Group has evolved such that we now number 38 counsel, including 2 silks, undertaking blue chip work on a national basis across the full spectrum of personal injury & clinical negligence litigation. I am delighted to be asked to lead this very successful team of specialist practitioners into an exciting next chapter for the Group."
